Top Interior Design Tips for Airbnb Hosts Here are some interior design tips that can elevate your Airbnb property, creating a space that resonates with guests and encourages bookings.

Seven steps

  1. Prioritize Comfort: Invest in quality mattresses, plush pillows, and soft linens. Make sure seating is comfortable. Remember, comfort is key to a guest's positive experience and a good review.

  2. Embrace Minimalism: Avoid clutter. A clean, minimalist design often appeals to a broad range of guests and creates a sense of space and tranquility.

  3. Inject Personality: While minimalism has its benefits, you don't want your space to feel cold or impersonal. Add touches of your personality or elements unique to your location. Local art, handcrafted furnishings, or region-specific decorations can add character to your space.

  4. Light Up Your Space: Good lighting can dramatically transform a space. Use a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to make your property feel warm and inviting.

  5. Pay Attention to Color: Colors evoke emotions. Stick to neutral tones for a calming effect and add pops of color for interest and energy.

  6. Aim for Functionality: Make sure your space is easy to navigate. Provide storage options for guests' belongings. The layout should be logical, easy to move around, and the amenities easy to locate.

  7. Wow with Small Details: Little touches like fresh flowers, a basket of local treats, or a well-stocked bookshelf can leave a lasting impression.
